COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A decadent Oatmeal Stout brimming with cocoa and espresso aromas. This beer features a rich, dark chocolate and roasted coffee flavor with a creamy mouth feel and wonderfully dry finish. The addition of U.S. grown fuggles hops contributes the perfect amount of bitterness to this exceptionally balanced beer.

Pours black in the glass. Aroma of slightly burned pancakes, but in a good way. Flavor is a delicious cocoa and coffee note. Overall, this would be great for breakfast!

Emeister84 (1040) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Aromas of milk chocolate, roast, espresso. Black with a mostly lasting tan head. Chocolatey malt sweetness initially, roasty malt bitterness, hops seem less prevalent. Medium bodied, smooth like velvet.

jbruner (2357) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Pours an opaque brownish black from the bottle with thin lacy khaki head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of nice dark chocolate and roasted malts with an underlying earthy hop. Taste follows, creamy and nice, add a hint of soy. Mild carbonation, hint of bitterness, a bit of boozy burn in the gut after you get through half the bottle. Very nice, pretty nice base for the barrel aged version.

Palme (3455) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2014
From a 0.355l bottle @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. A deep dark brown one with a small sidesticking and bubbly beige top. Not to roasted on the nose, more fruity with some yeasty hints, leather, some licorice - the sweet kind. Prunes and dried generic fruit. Yeah, smells nice. Smooth as a baby but in the mouth (not that I’ve tested that or anything), it has great chocolate flavors, more dried dark fruits and a little bit of minerals. Ends kinda mouthdrying with a roasted finish and coffee traces in aftertaste. Nice! 04.05.2013

12 oz bottle bought at Planet Wine. Pours a dark brown with deep red hues when backlit. Tan head diminishes to a thin wisp of bubbles on the meniscus, with concentration on the glass. Aroma is round and sweet: roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, grain. Flavor is rich and smooth: chocolate malt, slight coffee bitterness, hop presence, chewy bread and a sweet graininess similar to homebrew wort, all brought together in a silky mouthfeel. Delicious.

Bottle shared by RussianDragon. Thanks Dave! The beer is near black with a half inch of beige head. Scents of bread, roast, chocolate. Smooth on the palate. Flavors include char, roast, chocolate, and a hint of coffee beans. Easy drinking and overall, a solid example of the style.

Draft at Ale House. Pours deep dark black with a milk chocolaty brown head. Aroma has dark chocolate, coffee, dark grains and a bit of smoke. Flavor is unsweet chocolate, dark roasted grains. Grassy bitterness in the finish.

Deep brown pour with darker brown head that settled from a half inch to thin whisps quickly. Nose full of roasty malt, iron or bright cola syrup, vanilla and oak, overall a bit sweet and oaty. Carbonation is lively for the style, full mouthfeel but frothy, slightly warm finish. Taste first of chocolate, strongly brewed coffee, roasty malts and a healthy dose of vanilla. Good stout with great chocolate tones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
